Please dont forget Bruce Wilhelm. Competed in collegiate wrestling and track and field, as well as being an olympian in weightlifting, and track.  Was the first winner of the WSM as well. Twice.

Strongest right now is still Savickas IMHO. Kaz for the all time spot though.

I see Poundstone shaking things up soon though.

Bill and Jon-Pal in the early 1980s and that early strength freak the great Paul Anderson in the 1950s.

Poundstone has come up very quickly and for him to place second so soon in his career is phenomenal. I think he has the potential to show us the speed of mariusz combined with the power of Savickas. It would be a world of effort on his part but I think he can do it.

There's also WWE Superstar, Mark Henry, whom FLEX magazine rated the second strongest man of all time (I think Zydrunas Savickas was ranked #1).

backlift of anderson is controversial . in fact  they come with a new strongest man every ten years or so . why not the weakest man instead.
